Apparently the helpful staff described in other reviews were not working during our visit. The hotel itself is lovely and room was very clean and spacious. We had the Tortolas room which had one of the very best views in the hotel - a fantastic view. Some rooms have no view, and some overlook the street with a limited view....

The owners did an amazing job of converting an old hacienda and bakery into a beautiful hotel--the imagination and expense that must have gone into this multi-year project! The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful--restaurant, sightseeing and shopping recommendations, taxis, and so on. A general comment on driving in Guanajuato--don't even consider it. Ancient tunnels, one-way, narrow streets,...

If you are interested in experiencing the real Mexico, this hotel is perfect. The old bakery from the early XXth Century right in the heart of Guanajuato has been impecably remodeled by the owners who are incredibly generous and helpful. All 14 rooms are spotless and the views are breathtaking. The hotel has a restaurant with authentic meals at reasonable...

We loved our stay in Guanajuato and it was made even better by the staff and accomodations at Antiguo Vapor. Great central location, but still quiet. Amazing view of the vibrant city. Wonderful breakfast, well appointed room and extremely clean. The staff was tremendously helpful and recommended wonderful restaurants. Guanajuato is amazingly beautiful- we can't wait to go back.

Owner and staff couldn't do more to make us feel welcome. Good location - an easy walk from Jardin Union and University. Newly redone historic building. Spacious, comfortable, beautifully decorated & impeccably clean rooms. Generous continental breakfast included. We had a terrific view of the city. We stayed 6 nights, traveled around and then returned for another night. It was...

I chose Hotel Antiguo Vapor based on reviews here at tripadvisor, and feel that I couldn't have picked a better place. This was my first trip to Guanajuato, and the hotel was the perfect place to stay for my wife and I. While not exactly easy to find, every aspect of this hotel exceeded my expectations. The entire staff was...

I spent hours pouring through reviews trying to find the perfect place to stay in Guanajuato and I think we found it here. We stayed 5 nights and were extremely impressed. Each room is different, but the design is really bright and beautiful. I saw several rooms and can honestly say that the decor looks straight out of a glossy...

My wife and I selected this B@B based on a recommendation by our daughter who was studying in Guanajuato in the fall of 2008. We drove a rental car up from Guadalajara (about four hours) and found the Antiguo Vapor, after an exciting circuit around glorietas (roundabouts), through tunnels, and down alarmingly narrowing alleyways following the directions on the hotel...

Very friendly and personable staff. We traveled with our 2 yr old son; they went out of there way to make sure our stay was pleasant. The hotel was much better than we expected and in a great central location. Will stay there again.

My husband and I stayed at this charming hotel during the Cervantino festival. It was our first destination out of two other hotels we would be staying at during the nine day course of our honeymoon trip. I have to say, I wished I had stayed longer at this hotel, because of the charm, privacy I felt, location and reasonable...
